One talented hacker.
One dead body.
One explosive secret.
One dead body.
One explosive secret.
When one reckless night leads Farris Barnett to the dead body of a classmate, she's as willing as everyone else to write it off as a suicide. That is, until cryptic messages start coming in from someone who knows the truth, and they want Farris on the case. Putting her hacker skills to work, she begins to unravel the life of a victim who might just have been the guiltiest of them all.
Her personal life in turmoil, Farris turns to the only person she can trust to help her get to the bottom of things—a friend on the verge of becoming much more. Together, they confront a killer with a secret not even she could have decoded.
The biggest bombs, the ones that do the most damage, are the ones you never see coming.
I have read almost everything that this author has published and she always has a way of amazing me with her style of writing and this book was no different.
After composing myself, I am able to now think clearly and add my thoughts about this book.
There aren't too many authors who will be able to leave a tragic ending and leaving me sitting there in complete shock, horror and snot crying, and Ms. Ficklin has done it all in this book. Though, you will have to purchase a copy and read it for yourself, because I refuse to give up any more details on the subject.
The characters in the story are remarkable. I love the main character, Farris the most. She is strong willed, cocky, and tech savvy all built into one teenage girl. I love how the author did her homework about computer hacking, because Farris made hacking look easy even when it has several layers of codes and passwords to get through and I am happy that the author added more of Farris and her hacking abilities in this story. It really showed how talented Farris is at what she does. I love how the author tears down this character, but Farris seems to find a way to get back into control. I loved the suspense and the twisted roller coaster ride throughout this book. My emotions of shock were really working while I read this book. I actually sat and read the whole thing in one sitting because I just couldn't put it down. This is a remarkable read and I highly recommend this to all to read.
I am extremely anxious to see where this author will take us next in this series and I will be keeping my eyes open at all times to find out.

(#Hacker Series Book One)
One brilliant young hacker.
One experimental government aircraft.
One chance to keep it all from going up in flames.
Still recovering from her troubled past, Farris is no stranger to change. But when the military transfers her father across the country to an experimental aircraft squadron, settling in to a new life is the least of her problems. As a series of apparent computer glitches threaten the security of the fleet and the blame falls on her father, she decides to put her computer skills to use digging up the truth. Soon she's drawn into the perilous world of a hacker who is determined to ground the fleet--at any cost.
When all signs lead to someone close to her as the mastermind, Farris will have to burn more than bridges to get to the truth. She will have to risk her fragile new life to uncover the identity of the cyber criminal before they can escalate from harmless tampering... to all out murder.
Anyone who knows me knows that I a reader of YA Paranormal, but sometimes I have a tendency to step out of my comfort zone and read other genres and especially if the synopsis catches my attention and this one really caught my attention. I am a huge fan of Clean Teen Publishing and I love reading anything their authors put out there for our enjoyment in the art of reading.
This is the first time that I have actually read a novel by this author and I am pleasantly surprised by her writing style. I absolutely love Farris and her wittiness and spun throughout the book. She is a strong character and one that I fell in love with quickly. I all the twists and turns that the author put into the story to capture my attention and keep me entertained for a few hours of reading. I love the suspense and humor in the book too. I did kind of have the traitor figured out within about the middle of the book but it didn't detour me from reading it. It's a great Teen/YA story that I highly recommend any age to read.
Teenage drama on an military base with an awesome twist and some crime scene investigating and detective work. I loved it and I give it a five book review.
